Kansas enacts anti-texting law

| May 25, 2010

Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson signed an anti-texting-while-driving bill into law for all drivers.

Kansas becomes the 26th state to pass a texting ban.
 
Kansas’s new law will outlaw texting by all drivers. Drivers caught texting will receive warnings until Jan. 1, 2011, after which law enforcement will issue $60 fines for violations. Because it is a primary law, police officers can stop motorists suspected of this offense alone.
